Western Art - "Amor a la Vida"

As Kimberly and I are finally beginning to travel again, I remember how commonplace it once was for us to wander into large groups of people at outdoor events, responding to the energy of the crowd. Concerts, parades, and festivals all seem so distant at the moment, but I'm hopeful that we will see normalcy begin to return in the near future.

One of my most ambitions paintings yet, this scene is from a 2019 Dia De Los Muertos parade in Dallas, Texas. I wanted to capture the combination of figures, colors and patterns all coming together to create a sense of a celebration of life.
